This bug can be used to coordinate localization of the Get home page on
mozilla.org.  If localized text or HTML is attached, I can check this in to the
site (and we can work toward getting commit access to various localizers).

Note that the the home page includes a couple of feeds in English that can be replaced by more appropriate locale-specific feeds if available.

english and croatian translation side by side

As mentioned in the initial comment, in addition to localizing the static text we'll need to sort out what to do about the feeds getting pulled into the page before we go live with any localized home page versions.  For the Croatian version, feel free to post links to any relevant feeds in this bug.

Great, I'm excited to see a translation of the home page.  I apologize for leaving this out of the initial bug report but the home page text will be changing somewhat when we go live with the new home page design.  You can see an example of it at


I'd suggest holding off on adding any localizations of the home page until the new design is live in a few weeks.

Re the French attachment 501353 [details] from comment #7, I'm seeing strange characters when I'm opening it.

For this page, there is some content that updates on a regular basis -- the news feed and the items in the right sidebar that are updated weekly.  Would it be better to try to keep the localized pages updated regularly or create localized pages that are more permanent (for example we could create items in the right sidebar that are stable and not tied to a specific time frame)?

As Bugzilla doesn't specify the page encoding when displaying attachment details, the browser picks its default one, that is ISO8859-1, at least for en-US and fr, though the attachment is UTF8 encoded, hence the weird characters.
I sent you the files by email.

More permanent localized pages would be better, especially as we have currently no easy way (Verbatim or l10n SVN repository access to these pages) to update them.

OK, I can work on a permanent alternate version of the page that can then be localized.

I added the Croatian version of the home page and it is missing the main introductory content:


I added the French version and it's not showing up at all.  Must be an HTML or PHP error -- I haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

I added Rodrigo's Portuguese localization on the home page to the staging site at


There seem to be some encoding issues -- maybe something got garbled when I copied this over from pastebin?  I've had good look with text attached to bugs where the encoding can be set.  I'll try that and see if it helps.

That didn't seem to help -- Rodrigo, could you try adding the original text you had added to pastebin to this bug as an attachment?  Thanks.
Ops, I will convert all special characters to HTML code.
File updated http://pastebin.mozilla.org/1238333

I've changed all accentuated words using the respective HTML code.

More one correction, the Brazilian Portuguese is pt_BR not only pt like you added to the localized file.

Rodrigo, thanks for reposting.  That seems to have fixed all the issues I was seeing.  Check out the page on stage at


Note that based on your feedback I changed the file name from index.pt.html to index.pt-BR.html (and we'll be moving to the more standard l10n URL structure on www.mozilla.org soon).

If this looks good, I'll move it to the live site.
Only a small correction.

Replace the word "Você" by "Você" in the html code bellow

<div id="sidebar">
<div class="promo"> <a href="/join?WT.ac=join_h_a"><img
alt="Você pode ajudar! Junte-se à Mozilla." height="150" width="245"></a></div>
<ul class="more">

Doing it, the text is ok to be finally published.

Ahh, the block "In the news" is translatable?

Replace the word "você" by "voc&ecirc;" in the text bellow too

<h3>Reinvente Notícias Online</h3>
<p>Nos mostre como você pode contar uma história em uma nova

Sorry by so many update in that bug, nex time I will do in a better way. That's my first time translating content directly inside HTMl

OK, I made the changes from comment #25 and #26 on stage.  Please confirm that things looks correct there (it might be about 15 minutes before the change shows up).

> Ahh, the block "In the news" is translatable?

Right now there are parts of www.mozilla.org that can't be localized since we don't have a full localization system in place (this covers the header and footer as well as feeds such as the In The News block).  We should be able to fix this soon, but for now this is as much as we can do.
Now everything is ok! Thanks and sorry by so many updates here.

I will start to translate the other pages using the correct configs :-)

I will get the next stable pages from the whish list

Note that this bug is about the old mozilla.org home page before the .org and .com merge so this may now be a dupe of a bug for localizing the new home page.

Comment 37

Closing per David's comment above.  If needed, we will open a new bug to localize the new home page.
